    Local car audio shop installed amp and sub today...

    I got a JL 12W3V3 (2 ohm) in a slot ported enclosure powered by a Clarion APX1300.

    I should be getting 400 Watts RMS to the sub at 2 ohms.

    I have an Alpine DVA-9861 and I can control the sub level, 0-15 but when level is 0 the sub is still on. I think 0 should mean off.

    I'm happy with the sound but it vibrates my rearview mirror so bad that my view is of the backseat 5 seconds into a song.

    JL 12W3V3, Clarion APX 1300, Slotted Enclosure, Amp wiring kit and installation was $650.

    I could have saved some money by doing it myself. However, having it done in less than 2 hours and not having to do any actual work was worth it to me.

    The Fight Club Soundtrack sounded great on this set up.

    Who needs a rear view mirror


    And suprisingly thats not a bad price for all that stuff installed. Where did you get it done?

    yeah that doesn't sound like a bad price. also do the deck go into the negatives for sub level? 0 is probably just no extra boost.

    Yeah, negatives would be nice but it stops at zero.

    Also, my gain is only half way up and it still pounds really hard. I was happy about that.

    I copy and pasted this from their web site...

    Three great locations to serve you:


    614-475-6695
    2975A Morse Road
    Columbus, OH
    (1/2 mile west of Easton)

    614-552-1922
    1922 Brice Road
    Reynoldsburg, OH
    (SE corner of Livingston Ave.)

    740-366-6610
    360 Baker Boulevard
    Newark, OH
    (off 21st Street near Wal-Mart and Meijer)

    Their web site is columbuscaraudio.com and it is a really crappy web site!
